We have all had the problem of being awake during the night when we think we should be asleep. Remember that we are all different and our sleep needs are different too. Some sleep a good night of 9 hours while others say 5 or 6 hours is good.  

There are a few things you can do to get to sleep. There have been many articles written about turning off your electronics, not eating or eating a certain thing before bedtime, taking time to wind down, opening a window or taking a lavender Epsom salt bath. These are all great for falling asleep but what can you do if you tend to wake up in the middle of the night?  

HeartLoopUPHere’s the scenario:  I’m awake again and it’s 3 am. I have to get up for work in 3 hours, my brain is in overdrive and I am concerned I will be tired in the morning. 

OK, #1. Do you meditate? If you do, you’re in luck. Take the Yoga Corpse pose as you lay on your bed. Just lay flat, face up, legs comfortably apart, arms 8-10″ opened at your sides. If you are a meditator, do your favorite meditation practice. Take the focus off of falling asleep and just BE.

I’m not a meditator so what can I do to help myself. First things first,  you are awake and you believe you should be asleep.  There is a need for a shift in focus, so here is

#2.  Instead of fussing about wanting to go back to sleep, we are going to shift our focus to something pleasurable. It could be a happy moment in your life or a place that you love and imagine you are there. The monkey mind may chatter on but you deliberately keep coming back to your happy place. This takes practice but it’s worth it.

#3.  Take into consideration that you are awake for a reason.  We all have an Inner-Self that loves us unconditionally and supports us in every way. When we find ourselves awake in the wee hours of the morning it is often because something is in us that needs to be addressed, explored, released, allowed or resolved. The middle of the night is not such a great time for logical analysis, it is time more wisely used for intuitive receiving. All this means is that you acknowledge that you have 2 sides of your brain and that the quiet hours of the very early morning are excellent for getting in touch with your Inner-Knower and moving into a receptive state of being. This brings us to: 

#4. Because it is so quiet and still, you can access a very deep piece of yourself if you allow it to arise. Breathe deeply from your belly. Drink some water. Get out your journal and begin writing what you are feeling. Pause and thank yourself for taking the time to listen to your inner voice, for allowing it a place to express itself. Lay back down when you feel complete and tell yourself that you will arise refreshed and ready for the new day because you have taken the time to BE with yourself, to Listen to yourself, to express yourself.

#5.  Now is a great time to go through your Gratitude list. What are you grateful for? List these in your mind. I always begin with being grateful for the bed I lay upon, the pillow I rest my head on and on and on from there. Get absorbed in the richness of your life, focusing on ALL that brings you comfort, pleasure and sustenance. When you’re done, just tell yourself that you will arise refreshed and that you trust yourself.

#6.  Use your imagination.  Think of the rainbow. Red, Orange, Yellow, Green, Blue, Indigo, Violet and White. Imagine that you are resting in a bubble of light. As you breathe you will begin by filling your bubble with red light, feel it seeping into your skin as your entire being, inside and out absorbs the life giving energies of the red vibration. Breathe it in until you are completely red. Thank the red and move on to orange. Repeat the visualization with each color all the way up the rainbow from the base of your spine to the top of your head, ending as a completely full, White bubble of Light. Say thank you to yourself and your inner guidance and remember you are energizing and feeding yourself while you are resting and will be fine in the morning.

There are many things we can do with this time other that tossing and turning. It is about tuning in to ourselves. When you have completed one of the options above, take a few deep breathes and tell you body that it’s OK not to be sleeping, that you are resting and will have plenty of vitality for tomorrow. Remember, you are in Command of your body. Tell it what you want to feel, begin expecting this to be so. Be a good receiver and don’t give up. Finding a new relationship with yourself in the middle of the night can be a God sent.

This is a very volatile time for many folks, you may be experiencing a new, fresh start or be revisiting what was happening between 1993 and 1995. Think about it, are you feeling released from the past and free to move forward or are you reliving an old theme?

Come home to yourself. The Angels of Light and Guidance and I are ready to help. Surrender to your own inner knowing. You really do have all the answers. Take the time to find them.

Seed of Life Flower a life affirming symbol.

Vitality Activator: I AM filled with VITALITY

I have been playing with the idea of a Sphere representing the Creator.  As the Spheres multiply the beautiful Seed of Life is created.  Within every sphere of reality, there exists the opportunity for all of the spheres to align in harmony.

The Vitality Activator is an orange sphere with a rose glow.  Orange as in prana or life force, rose as in love and kindness.  Within this bubble of life a violet purifying sphere holds within it the Seed of Life, a series of spheres overlapping to create the flower.  This is you, the unique flower, with all of your varying petals.

This natural, sacred alignment holds the harmonic tension of the colors by pairing the purifying violet with the vital life force of the orange and red.  Feel the activity that these colors stimulate in you.  Opposite ends of our chakra antenna activated simultaneously.

If you would like to use this image an open eye meditation simply say:   I AM filled with Vitality !

I’d like this one on a black T-shirt for Mother’s Day.  :-)

Use Your Power, the Blessing Chair

Use Your Power by Deb Barrett

You may have an ache or a pain, you may have a chronic condition, but who is it that is generating these conditions?  We now know it is the mind, YOUR mind.

So, what can we do to improve our condition, right here, right now?  

Talk to your body directly.  Sounds easy enough but how often do we directly speak to our form?  The answer may surprise you.  We talk to our body every day, every moment with our thoughts and especially with our words.

Have you ever heard someone say, ‘what a pain in the neck’, how about, ‘that makes me sick to my stomach’ or ‘give me a break’ ?  Sounds like just sayings but your body is an exact mirror of your thoughts, words and beliefs so what will your body be mirroring for you if you speak this way?

I can hear some of you refuting what is being said here because you may have a REAL problem with your body.  I’m smiling because I know that even with this mind set we have the power to change and improve our body’s condition.

If I look into the mirror and repeatedly say how fat I am, guess what,…. my body will accommodate me.  If I say, ‘I am slim and trim and healthy, I am wealthy, wealthy, wealthy’, my body will begin to move me in that direction as well.

Self talk and words spoken are our tools.  Remember, first there was the word.  The spoken word of God had the power to create the light, and the Universe.  We are made in the likeness and image of our creator so it follows that we also have the power of the spoken word, the vibration of which sets our world into motion.

Simple request:  Think of one broad positive statement that you can say to yourself daily, hourly, even moment to moment.  Make it a good one, something that really resonates with your desired reality.  Take this statement and make it your inner mantra and each morning before you arise dare to say it out loud to yourself in a strong, deliberate and commanding voice.  Your body, mind and Spirit will take this statement and start to materialize it.  You will notice your choices changing.  Amazing ! and so simple.

Use your power!  Never forget how divinely empowered you really are, you would not be here otherwise.  Feel free to share your powerful, positive statement below, you never know who it may help along the way.

May all your suffering be erased on this Good Friday and may you find your light inside expanding to include your every experience, your every encounter.

love to you

Lucky Angel by Deb Barrett, The Blessing Chair and Blessing Chair Visions

Lucky Angel, the Synchronizing Angel by Deb Barrrett, The Blessing Chair.

What is Luck?  

I’m not sure I believe in pure luck…I think luck is what you create. If I say, “I Am always in the right place at the right time”, I am ushering in the frequency of perfect timing, beneficial synchronicities will appear in my life quite effortlessly.

If I tell myself, ‘ I AM unlucky, I never win anything, I am never in the right place at the right time”, I might as well not bother participating because the one observing the event ALWAYS effects the outcome.  There is no separation between our mind and what we are experiencing.  Mirror, Mirror.

But, here it is, the day of the big Mega Millions drawing.  Someone or some ones will be $640 million richer very soon.  So I am sending out the Angel of Luck, the Synchronizing Angel.  I hope you can identify with her innate qualities of perfect timing, synchronistic moments and delightful unexpected surprises.

May all your dreams come true. Say,  I AM LUCKY, I AM LUCKY, I AM LUCKY !!!

love to you
